Choosing the right commercial catering equipment and ‘heavy-duty’ kitchen appliances is sometimes a daunting task. There are many brands to choose from that all look the same, but are they all the same? It goes without saying that you should never use domestic equipment in commercial kitchens.
Secondly – you should always seek the help of a professional foodservice representative. Talking to our staff or e-mailing us will guarantee that you are dealing with a Certified Food Service Professional (C.F.S.P) who can source product, secure the best pricing and finally ensure that the items get delivered.
Not only are domestic appliances unable to keep up with the day-to-day demands of professional kitchens, but understandably, most manufacturers won’t honour warranties for products designed for domestic use when used for commercial purposes. Will your catering equipment be able to meet demand and produce food in the quantities you require?
As well as the size and quality also consider its power capabilities. Less powerful equipment is unlikely to be able to keep up, while you could end up spending more on maintenance costs due to regular breakdowns. When it comes to kitchen equipment, rather than focusing on the up-front expense, it pays to consider the whole lifetime cost.
Commercial kitchens consume approximately 2.5 times more energy per square metre than any other commercial space. However, significant savings can be achieved by using energy-efficient appliances. Indeed, energy efficient kitchen equipment could result in a 20% reduction on your energy bills, delivering savings that drive straight to your bottom line.
Where space is at a premium, modular kitchen equipment may offer a more practical solution. Likewise, multi-functional items such as combi-ovens provide an excellent space saving solution. Keeping your catering equipment in perfect working order isn’t just essential for ensuring food quality and consistency; it’s business critical. As such, maintenance costs should always be considered when choosing new kitchen equipment.
